Whatis the meaning of theColumbia
State's endorsement of the "Forty"?
Has it any signifieance? Is there a
finegItalian hand in it? Dargan preach
ingbrotherly love to the negroes,Gon.
zales charging the State administa
tion with defrauding the negroes
out of their rights and offering to
test the matter in the federal courts,
andnow urging that his followers
go in with the "Forty." Has Mr.
Gonzales forgotten that the "Forty"
are called together as members of an
organization which he does not affili
Ste with, and what ever action they
may take shall be subject to the ap
proval of the regular Democratic or
ganization? The "Forty" have ex
tended their invitation to Democrats
not simply to white men and the past
four years have- produced a small
number of white men that are not
Demaocrats and they should be self
respecting enough to keep out of
where they are not wanted. The
"Forty" want- no conference with
Popeites and Haskellites; they want
to confer with Reformers and Con
servative thathave in the past and
wil in the future stand loyally by
our State Democratie organization,
and we hope that the P.ichland Dem
ocrats will see to it that they are
represented by a set of men who will
be acceptable to Reformers and Con
ervatives, from other parts of the
State. The conference next Wednes
day can accomplish a great deal of
good and will do so, if no prevented
by men who have always been a
thorninthefdesh to both factions.
If a askrellite or a Popeite whom
the people hate gets into that confer
ence undertakes to lead the oon
Serence will be smashed to pieces just
as would a china shop with a wild bull
turmd loose into it.
We do not think the Darlington
W : peopl, did a wise thing in selecting
Mayor W. F. Dargan to represent
2hem in the "Forty" conference. Mr.
Dargan is regarded throughout the
State as one of the most violent op
ponents to the eform cause. The
people him in the same
political with Gonzales, Wood
zd and other extremis and the
presence of such menin that confer
ence will revive feelings that are
sought to be allayed. We can say
for this county, should it decide to be
represented in the conference; a dif
ferent class ofmen will go. Since the
Columbia State has taken up the
cause of the "Forty" whether asked
to do soor not, men have left it like
taaleaving asinking ship. Our idea
of the "Forty" was andis to try, it
possible to unite the white people on
.this constitutional~convention ques
'ion within the rules of the regularly
organized Demnocratio party of
the State. That they recognize the
State executive committee of which
Ro.JL.rby ischairman asthe
head of the party and they will be
true in their allegiance toit. Now if
the "Forty" are going to affiliate with
with Gonzales and men of his poli
tical creed, why not invite Brayton,
Melton, Moorman, John J. Dargan
Pope? This paper endorsed the call
of the "Forty" because it was anxious
'for an adjustment of the differences
existing between Democrats, but we
do not propose to recognize as Demo
crats men who are so solitictous of
the negroes welfare as to continue
from day to day crying "fraud" in;
matte of reitainof the colored'
voters. The "ot" should not deal
with men of the Cns ative faction1
whom the Conservatives themselves
will not recognize' and we are satis
fied that had the Conservatives con
sidered Messrs. Gonzales, W. F.
Dagnand John J. Dargan of the
'gh stamp, inmitations would have
been extended to them to attend the
Conservative conferences. They are
not wanted by the Conservatives and
the Reformers don't need them in
their busines If the "Forty" con
ference are to have a peace and unity
meeting, somebody will have to be
bucked and gagged or the thing will
go up like a sky rocket.

Recollections of Potter's Rad.
By aMT. UK, V. OOD.
It was some hours before sunset that our
yard and home was crowded with negro
soldiers. They were boisterous and rude.
They looked upon me in bed suspiciously.
Some of them would peep in the door,
thers more bold would stand in the door.
while others would come up to the bed and
look me full in the face, thratning us all.
The hired servant, before a negro
sergeant, who, with his sword dangling at
his side, walked boldly over the house, had
occasion to speak to me, calling me "Mass
William." It fired him. He dew into a
rage, and with a horrible oath he cursed
her. "You call him Master?" "He is not
Four master. You are as free as he is.
Don't call him master." Matters were
powing serious. The confusion and ex
sitement seemed more than I could beAr.
[needed the advic, and attention of a
physician. Bemembering what had been
old Mrs. hi. about applymng to the Gen
iral for aguard, she suggested it to me.
But there was no one to go but her. This
ard us it was, to leave the house and .go
brough the restlescrowdso egro0es across
he street, she undertook, placing the babe
beside me on the bed. bhe met a very
ulaboately dressed oflier at the gate. He
hold her he was not the Genera], but
walked with her to the steps.'ad pointing
o the palor door, said "he is there with
he ladies of the house." There being no
ther chair vacant in the room he' offered
ber his, and heard what she said about our
night, and the rudeness of the negroes,
ko. He asked her to 'point out the house,
which she did, and the ladies (&Irs. H. and
aer mother), confirming her sament as
:owho shewas, he seid a guard would at
me be plaed atthepgte. We suppose it
was done. We never felt their luse, at
east we did not know how to use the
aard, ifplaced at the gate. On her re
;urn she said to me in their hearing: It
was very kind in the General to send a
guard topec us." Then they left, but
uthers soon returned. One of the servants
;hen informed us that they were breaking
fto our store room. It was acress the
gard near the well. 'this 'was a serious
ifair; it was all we had, and the thought
was suggested, perhaps Lieutenant Water
nan can help us. ad the servant was gone
>ut a moment when h' returned with her:
e said "everything mu.? be brought into
lhe house, into this room; and he intimat
d that his family were Methodists, and
hat he did not suppose I had anything to
pre." .I told him that the greater part of
ny salary had been paid in provisions, and
hat itwas ncessary tosave what we had.
Ee would not insist on ging en with the
servants, but would not lite to Mrs. hi.
going with him, but she would go. There
iad been brought into the room a bag of
ice andsome meat, andperhaps a jar of
ad, when my wife came in, end, in tears,
auid her face upon the bed beside me.
Sh. was completely brioken down. I could
tot imagine what had caused these sobs
ad tears; and while she was telling me,
deutennt Waterman came in and saw
ir distress. He expressed great regret at
what he had said, and protested that there
was not any purpose to give us any more
rouble than was upon us. But that since
hey had gotten into town, they had had
,ommunication with Sumter, and we must
tot ask bow they had this. But this in
oimation had changed General Potter's
~urpose. we had intended to rest here
0-morrow, but we will move on to Sum
er to-morrow, and the entire fogee will be
n the road at early dawn. Thinking you
mght to know the worst, I have told Mrs.
I. that our information is that General
rant has General Lece in such a position
hat he cannot escape He'll be forced to
urrender. It is this that has distressed
er; far be itfromnle to injure the feel
g of one of the daughters of south Caro
ina or Virginia. I hold them in the
uigest esteem, and think them the greatest
omen In this broad land." I told him
'that with all due respect to his kindness
o us, kindness which we never forget, I
id not believe one word he had said. I
ould not be made to believe it." He re
>lied that "he admired my spirit, but
hat what he had told me would in a short
ime be confirmed, and that our cause was
ot. This was alarming intelligence. I
as not prepared for this. But alas, so
rue. While this was going on, he was
aled away by many voices in the yard.
,on our house was filled with soldiers;
hey had lighted torches in their hand.
When I saw the light (it was growing dark)
ny concIusion was, they are here to Sre the
mouse. The servant went again in haste
or our protector Lieutenant Waterman.
e was at his tent, aud in a trice was in
he house. I heard his voice, and some
me say, "Is that you, Lieuitenant?" Then
is reply: "Y!ou need not search the
mouse any., further. I have been over it.
Ietinre with your men as quietly as poss
ble. Hle is quite sick, as you see." Be
hen came to my bedside, and in his kind
at manner told me not to be alarmed; it
ra only "the Provost Guard under orders,
>ut he had gone; tuey were looking for
Irearms, and ammunition. He said that
his sudden change in the marching or
ers had given him much to do." He
emed to feel for us sincerely, and re
ciarked to Mrs. hi. that I ought to have
ome coffee, perhaps tea would be better;
hat in their stores they had no tea, and
bat he had failed to find the sommnissary
ragon containing coffee or he would have
arought me some. He found me very
eeble, and we were all in great trouble;
nd more ao because he said he hardly
ourht he could drop in again as there
ras much upon his hands. T was nw
-anrc ha .e au f,.iend; that hia did
not believe I had deceived the army by
shooting down their man and then taking
a back street and going to bed. I tried to
thank him for his kindness. (I had asked
him in his fir t visit is he was a married
man. He looked confused, and with a
blush upon his cheeks said: "I am too
young to be married." My heart was full.
Then Mrs. K stood before him with a
large ham in her hands. (It had been
given us on our salary by our friend Dr. S.
P. Oliver, near St. Mark's church.) and she
too tried to thank him for his kindness
and with choking utterances asked him to
accept the ham; it was all we had to give
him. He bowed and took it in both hands
and said: "I can't consent to take this
from you, though I fully appreciate your
kindness. From appearences. Mrs. M.,
you'll need this meat before I will. Our
commissary stores are ample;" and he laid
laid it down upon the hearth beside the
bag of rice. on't remember that we
shook his hand in parting. If we did not
it was because he hastened away seeing
our emotion; the distress we were in and
my extreme feebleness. He did not want
to witness it any longer. An hour or so
afterward when I thought it all over I had
many regrets, and they increased for over
twenty years, that I had not asked him his

ATrTA, March 15.-Hon. Hector D.
Lane, commissioner of agriculture of
Alabama and president of the Ameri
can Cotton Growers Protective assotis
tion addresses today a communication
to the cotton growers of the mouth in
which he warns them against what he
calls the stragette movement being
made by cotton manipulators to delude
them into the suicidal act of planting
again a large crop of cotton.
He says that uneasiness has been felt
In Liverpool for some time ebacerning
a probably decreased acreage and had
this menace not existed cottpn would
have been even lower than it has been,
and now as the end of the season Is at
hand and the staple issubstantially out
of the hands of the farmer, these gen
tlemen who have represented the "bear"
element so many months while cotton
was moving in large volumes, now re
sort to this ruse of running values up
simply as a device to Induce farmers to
plant more eotton than intended.
- He warns the farmers that the rise
in eotton of the last few days Is ficti
clous and that it is the product of a
spiraev to systematically rob the
producer of his legitimate gains.
"let the People Bewar
Continuing he says: "Let the peo
pie beware. It is a bait to catch those
who will bite. There is no legitimate
reason shown for this sudden rise in
ootton values. The production has ex
eeeded the most sanguine expectatipas;
Russia kiss placed a virtually prohibi
tave duty on American ooftoui, so we
an no longer sell her 500,000 bales."
He says that those who are actnally
engaged in the work of producing cot
ton are not earning twelve cents a day
for their labor the year round "and
what Is to be the fate of this
man when his cotton goes down one
or one and a half cents thisfall?" Nor
is it at all Improbable when we recog

I invite consideration of the fact that
we had a most phenominal season for
plcking our crop this last season and
i classiLeation was higher than ever
known. Hardly any grading les than

"I invoke," he concludes "the most
earnest attention of cotton growers to
this nefarious scheme and address you
this letter as the caveat that you may
not be deluded by this wolf in sheer's
clothing, or in other words, this 'bear'
in 'bull's' clothing."
